Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase Review & GIVEAWAY!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on May 25, 2014 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (1)



As you may remember, last year I reviewed, and hosted a giveaway for, the Polar-Pillow (see that review here), and many of you were very interested in it.  I heard back from several of you that you had hoped to win because you frequently experience migraines, hot flashes, night sweats, live in hot climates, and etc., and hoped the Polar-Pillow could help you.  Well, I've got some great news!  The ingenious, and generous, people at Polar-Pillow are at it again!  


So you ask, what can possibly be better than a Polar-Pillow?  And the answer is... A Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase, by the makers of Polar-Pillow, that allows you to turn your favorite, standard size, pillow (ANY standard size pillow), into a turbo-cooling pillow!  Plus, it's HALF the price of the original Polar-Pillow (AVR $99)!  Average retail value of the Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase is $49.


I personally love the Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase because it is ULTRA SOFT and provides a cool night's rest.  And I highly recommend it to anyone whom wants to turn their favorite pillow into a cooling pillow.  I think this product is especially great for those of you whom use special orthopedic pillows and want to vamp them up to a specialized cooling pillow.  I can only imagine how therapeutic that would be!

Tips to Winning Giveaways!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on April 12, 2013 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (6)

                                   


The secret to winning giveaways, is really no secret at all.  It's simple really: SIMPLY ENTER TO WIN!  If you don't enter, you can't win.  And the more you enter, the better your chances!  Personally, I spend about an hour every day entering giveaways.  I've made it a part of my daily routine.  It's a chore, but it pays off.  I win stuff all the time!  And sometimes the things are really nice!


I've put together a huge list of FREE instant win games and sweepstakes that I update almost daily.  It takes me about an hour every day to enter everything on the list. I promise you that if you spend the time entering, and I don't just mean one time or one day, but if you make it a part of your regular routine and stick to it, you're sure to win!  Here's my huge list of giveaways -->  http://1frugalmom.webs.com/apps/blog/show/18384740-free-daily-instant-win-games-sweepstakes-  GOOD LUCK!!!  :D


In addition to entering frequently, and as much as possible, here are some more tips...


--  Check your email often! Many giveaways limit the time frame you have to claim your prize. And always check your spam/junk folders b/c many emails from companies go directly into that box.


--  To help locate winning notices, I recommend searching your email every few days by key words like: congratulations, congrats, you've won, you won, you win, winner, prize, fulfillment, and etc.  Be sure to check both your inbox, and your spam/junk folder, by those keywords.


--  Always follow the rules.  Never try to cheat or you could be disqualified.  For example, if the giveaway states "only one entry per household," trust me, they have ways of knowing where every entry came from, and if they received more than one entry from your IP address, you may lose your chance to win. 


--  In many cases, you'll only have to enter your info (name, address, etc) the 1st time entering. Then when you return to enter again each day after that, usually all you'll need to enter is the email address you originally used to signed-up.   However, in some cases, the entry forms require you to fill it out completely each time.  To save time, I use Google Chrome's auto-fill.  I believe FireFox may also offer autofill, too.  Use it!  It's a huge time saver!  It also helps if your email address is short, lol.  Mine is longer, and it's a pain in the butt to type it out when required.  


-- It may help to have a separate, designated, email address just for entering sweepstakes b/c sometimes signing up for newsletters may be required, and/or you may receive a lot of "entry confirmation" emails, and a separate email address will help keep the possible clutter out of your personal box.  Just remember to check it frequently (and it's spam folder, too).  Also, another benefit of doing this, is that you'll know that any and all emails received in that email account are from your giveaway entries.


--  If you have the option to opt-out of a mailing listing, take it.  That means either checking or unchecking a box, or boxes, to stay off their mailing list.  Look closely.


--  If you're uncomfortable sharing your date of birth on the entry forms, you can fudge your date by a number or two. For example, if your birthday is 2/22/80, you could say your bday is 2/21/80, or 3/22/80, or 2/22/81, just change one digit that will be easy for you to remember. In most cases, they only request your DOB (date of birth) because you have to be above a certain age to participate, and this date is usually never verified. However, please keep in mind that if you win a big prize like a huge cash amount or vehicle, you may be required to show your ID to claim your prize (although not likely, it could happen). If that were to happen, hopefully because the date would only be one digit off, they would be willing to accept it w/ the slight error assuming it was a simple typo (that's my thoughts anyway).


--  The more effort required to enter a giveaway, the better your chances of winning b/c many others will not put forth the effort to enter. Giveaways like this include things like photo contests, jingle contests, recipe contests, and etc., that require action (instead of just clicking or filling out a short form). Personally, I've won some of my best prizes with giveaways that required a photo entry.


--  Use a FREE Google Voice Number, instead of your home/cell phone number, to have control over unwanted sales calls.  Google Voice Numbers can be forwarded to any other number you want, like your home or cell phone, or straight to voice mail (in which case you'll receive an email notification), so callers will never know it's not your real number (and you'll never miss a sweepstakes winning call).  Plus, Google Voice Numbers provide the option to BLOCK unwanted calls. So if/when you do get a sales call, you can always block that number to prevent further calls from that unwanted caller.  I LOVE Google Voice!  And I strongly suggest using it instead of your real/direct number(s).  Trust me, you'll thank me later.  


--  Click through to the end.  Make sure that you click all the way through to the end.  You want to see something that confirms that your entry has been received.  Sometimes the URL in your browser will also change and have an ending that says something like "thank you."



In a nut shell:

1.)  Enter to win often!  Make it a part of your daily routine if possible.

2.)  Check email frequently.  And don't forget to also check spam/junk folders.

3.)  Routinely search your email by key "winning" announcement type words.

4.)  Make sure you follow the rules to prevent being disqualified.  This should really be #1.

5.)  Use auto fill.  I use Google Chrome's, it's free & easy.  I think FireFox offers it, too.

6.) Set-up a dedicated, short, email address just for giveaways.  And don't forget to check it often (along w/ it's spam folder).  And opt out of mailing lists to prevent email clutter.

7.) If you're concerned about providing your birthdate, change it by one digit.  

8.)  The harder the entry requirements, the fewer people will enter, which means a better chance of you winning.  Examples:  Photo contests, jingle contests, recipe contests, & etc.

9.)  Use a FREE Google Voice Number to avoid unwanted sales calls. 

10.)  Click through to the end & make sure to get confirmation that your entry was received.
